A Botox lip flip may be for you if you want a little extra enhancement and you’re not ready for lip filler, if you lose your upper lip when you smile, and if you want to reduce your upper lip lines. Lip filler might be right for you if you want to add volume to your lips, including your bottom lip, and have longer lasting results.

Our goal at Renew MedSpa is to give you beautiful and natural looking results. Our treatment approach is to dose conservatively with the knowledge that it’s much easier on you for us to add more in a couple weeks post-treatment than to try to reverse undesired results. Schedule a free consultation today to see if a lip flip or lip filler is right for you.
